#The100DayProject Update – Day 28

by Sigourney Young

This year I’m completing #The100DayProject and I can’t believe that we’re already at Day 28. It has been such a rewarding and challenging experience and I’ve been so happy to share it with you all on Instagram and Facebook.

I’m well on my way to painting 100 synesthesia artworks in 100 days and I’ve been taking the opportunity to experiment with new styles and mediums. Working abstractly, I’m making my way from 100 to 1 on The Rolling Stone’s ‘The 100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far’.

The pile just gets bigger and bigger!

I started the project with the intention to master my new Caran d’Ache Neocolour – Water Soluble Wax Pastels. I’d seen these used online and love the airy, translucent texture of the pastel.

For the first few days, I stuck to these but found myself missing the pure vibrancy of my Holbein Watercolours. Not only was the colour missing, but I wasn’t convinced that the pastel textures captured the music and my synesthesia experience in the way I want.

I soon started experimenting again with abstracts in pure Holbein Watercolours but am determined to find the perfect balance between the two.

It’s 28 days in and I can’t wait to see what the rest of these 100 days holds! For now, here’s the first 28 days

I’m Sigourney

I’m a synesthesia artist that will be forever found with paint on my nose, dancing around the studio in my yoga pants. I love travel, gluten-free brownies and working from the home studio I share with my husband. My goal? To bring you into the world of synesthesia and to create a space online that celebrates the colour and meaning of music.
